Do you watch screencasts?
I’ve discovered this way of getting technical information for myself only recently. Impression is only positive so far - the perceptual speed is much faster comparing to reading.
For example, after Coding in Objective-C 2.0 I can write a program in this language using classes and have an idea how the memory management works in Objective-C (by the way, it’s quite interesting concept - a “manual” garbage collector when memory is freed automatically but the programmer has to manage the counter of active links to an object by himself.
This is a delicate moment with screencasts - it should be made qualitatively. Otherwise it’s waste of time.
Which screencasts do you watch? What can you recommend?
P.S. By the way, I like The pragmatic Bookshelf online store more and more. All books are in multiple DRM free formats (pdf, mobi, epub).
